Befuddled

Wha?

Manolo says, the Ozzie he is all, who the HELL is this?

The Will’s Fancy

Manolo says, for several days the Manolo he has been meaning to mention the shoes of the Will’s Fancy which they have the very colorful collection of the springtimey shoes.

As you may know the Manolo he has recently been obsessed with the thong sandals, and here below is the cute and simple thong in the irredescent colors from the Will’s Fancy

Baby Shoes

Manolo says, since the Manolo he invented the shoe blog last year, the shoe-blogging it has spread like the wildfire. There is now even the shoe blog about the baby shoes!

Ayyyyy! The Astrid!

Ayyyy!  Astrid Hadad!

Manolo shouts, Ayyyyy! The Astrid Hadad!

The humble name of the Manolo it is not even worthy of appearing in the same sentence with that of. The Astrid Hadad.

She is the genius, the mad, funny, histrionic, blazing, beautiful genius, who is perhaps not looking her best in this picture.

The Greek Goddess

Manolo says, the thumbs-up image of the Donaldus Minimus, it has put the Manolo in the mind of the Classical World, and this, of the course, it means that the Manolo he is thinking of the gilded sandals of the classical inspiration.

Manolo says, these are, from the top, the sandals of the Donald Pliner, Isaac Mizrahi, and the Bruno Magli. And in any of them you would look like the Aphrodite emerging from the sea, or perhaps the Artemis on the hunt.

Shoes For The Girl With The Wide Feets

Manolo says, over the past several weeks the Manolo has received many, many, many letters like the following from his internet friends.

I appreciate your advice for women with the tiny feets, but I have the complete opposite problem.

What about the woman with the wide feet, the big feet, the feet with high arches? What can she do? Is she doomed to terribly unhappy shoes from Hush Puppies or Naturalizer or Easy Spirit?

Manolo says, the wide feets they are indeed the problem for the girls who wish to look super fantastic. However, the Manolo he can make the few recommendations.

If the girl she is possessed of the ordinarily wide feets–the sizes the C, the D, or the W–there are many shoes available at the Zappos that meet the requirements of both the size and the super fantasticness.

For the example this beautiful black boot from the Stuart Weitzman, which the Manolo he has recommended it in the past, it is available in the size W up to the 11.5.

Likewise, this sophisticated pump from the Bruno Magli, which the Manolo he has also recommended it in the past, it too is available in the W up to the size 11. (It is even on the sale, reduced 44% from the original price.)

If you wish to see more of the shoes that are in the wider (or the longer) sizes, the Zappos, they have the search engine that can accomodate this.

Much more difficult to find, however, than the sizes the C, the D, or the W, are the sizes the E, the EE, and the WW. Here the options they are reduced. The search of the Zappos, and the search of the sites specifically for the wide feets, like the DesignerShoes.com, show that the selections they leave much to be desired.

However, there is one brand of the shoe that has the selection in the widest of the wide sizes, these they are the shoes of Magdesian Brothers. These shoes, they are the moderately priced shoes for the big-feeted girls who will not give up completely on the stylishness.

Here are two pairs that are available in the WW up to the size 14, and that the Manolo he could live with.

Magdesians - Anna (Black Peau/Black Patent) - Women's

This shoe, it has the round-toed, retro styling and the chunky heel that are very much of the moment.

Magdesians - Alpha-r (Black Peau)

This simple black mule, it will create the illusion of the more slender foot.

Sadly, most of the other shoes from the Magdesians, they will make you look like the Mrs. Doubtfire.

Manolo says, of the course, the best and most super fantastic of all the solutions to the problems of the too large, and the too small feets is to have the shoes custom made. Nothing compares to this in the terms of the fit and the beauty of the finished product.

Manolo says, it is the first step for the Chairman Kaga on the road to recovering the lost flamboyance.

The Leibniz

Manolo says, these strappy sandals from the Bruno Magli they bear the odd name for the shoe of the Leibniz. If this it is the trend of naming the shoes after the famous philosophers, please reserve for the Manolo the shoes named after the Epicurious.

In any of the events, this sandal, it has the pre-established harmony that the Manolo appreciates, and even the better, it is almost also on the best of all possible sales, 61% off! Saving the frugal super fantastic girl over $180 of the American dollars!

There are more such deals to be seen at the Manolo’s Basement of the Bargains.

Clean Sweep

Ick!

Manolo says, the Arnold says, would you believe that all of dis was recently flushed from my colon?

The E-Mails of the Manolo

Manolo says, if you have recently e-mailed the Manolo asking the question, or giving the comment, please forgive him if he has not responded in the most timely manner. The Manolo he now is receiving many dozens of the emails each of the days, and although he strives mightily to respond to each personally, it is the humbling task to try to do so promptly.

Many thanks for your patience in this matter, and please do not stop sending the emails as the Manolo he loves to read them.
